How are porcelain veneers placed?

cover chipped or stained teeth | veneers amherst nh If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, such as veneers in the Amherst area, you might have a few questions about how they work. One of the most common questions we hear is about how we place porcelain veneers. 

The Dental Veneer Process

It is important to understand that porcelain veneers are a lifelong decision. Most patients wish they had gotten them sooner and love their new smiles. We custom-design your veneers and when your permanent restoration is ready, we will place them permanently. We do this by polishing away a small amount of enamel from your natural tooth. This prepares the surface of your tooth to effectively adhere to your veneers and also makes space for them so that they look completely natural instead of bulky. Once we attach all of your veneers to your teeth, Dr. Edwards will make any final adjustments necessary to ensure a good fit and an accurate bite.
